The surface is very crisp. It is really juicy and delicious.
The karaage is as big as the rumours say, and almost overhangs the bowl. When you lift it up with chopsticks, it is heavy. The batter, which is made mainly from flour, is so crunchy that when you bite into it you hear a “crunch! sound when you bite into it. The meat is lightly seasoned. However, when dipped in the thicker sauce, it is delicious! The batter becomes moist and the meat soaks up the bonito broth. It makes a nice Japanese-style karaage and goes well with soba noodles. Two jumbo-sized pieces are served, but I was able to finish them off in no time.
The karaage is so popular that it can be ordered separately, and many customers take it home with them. According to the owner, “Some customers order just the fried chicken and pour soba sauce over it. The fried chicken is such a great match with the sauce, it is understandable why they would want to do so.
